GHURRA   The object, used for churning milk in butter. They hold the churning-rod on its place during the churning proces. Besides being a household utensil, these objects remind the user on the Hindu creation-myth, in which the gods were churning the primal ocean after which ‘Man’ was created. They can have many forms. Some are clearly abstract anthropomorphic, others are phalic. Some of them are figurative and show a scene from daily live. Sometimes they relate to ancestor worship or shamanic rituals. The ghurra is the axis of the Nepali primal art.
